  • - Pockets!
  • - Pockets!
  • - Pockets! - Pockets!
  • - [Keith] Everybody's got 'em!
  • - Well, maybe not.
  • - Women's pants traditionally do not have the pockets
  • that we have, apparently.
  • - Wow.
  • - Do you have pockets right now?
  • - No, I'm wearing a dress.
  • - Some of us are gonna sew up our pockets,
  • some of us are gonna wear jeggings,
  • and some of us are gonna have little girl pockets.
  • - There may be nothing in our pockets,
  • but we're still excited to see you.
  • (quirky beat)
  • - Women's clothing traditionally doesn't have
  • the same type of pockets as men's.
  • - One of my best friend's growing up was a girl.
  • She had different pockets than me.
  • I remember from like age six just being like
  • "What the fuck's up with your pants?"
  • (giggles) You can't put anything in those pants.
  • - Pockets are interesting because they're so small.
  • It's a minute detail that's generally just a convenience
  • that most men are used to.
  • - So to help us learn about the history
  • and fashion of pockets,
  • we're meeting up with our old friend Safiya Nygaard.
  • - How many of your outfits actually have pockets?
  • - Well, I would say that any outfit that I'm wearing
  • that has pants in it has some type of pocket.
  • Usually there's like something
  • to sort of put your hands in to
  • like up to probably your knuckles.
  • - It's just the tip pocket?
  • - It's a just the tip pocket.
  • It's only for the tip.
  • - (laughs) It's the worst.
  • - Yeah (laughs).
  • - We're at the mall.
  • Eugene, show 'em what you like to do.
  • - (singing) We're off to see the Wizard,
  • the Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
  • He is a whiz of a wiz
  • If ever a wiz there was
  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • I can do that. I can do that.
  • - (singing) We're off to see the Wizard ...
  • No, no, it's really bad.
  • - As men we've usually got big old,
  • big old pockets.
  • - Right now, I got like a dad wallet.
  • You wish you could order a steak this thick.
  • - I always have just like
  • some crumpled up bullshit in my pocket.
  • - I do the standard 1-2-3,
  • phone, wallet, keys.
  • - I ran out of tea at home so I stole some from the office.
  • I think I've got about four packets in there.
  • - I normally have dairy pills, I got my phone.
  • - I can fit full water bottles in my back pocket.
  • - I love a good pocket.
  • I love hot pockets. I love cold pockets.
  • Sometimes I put so much stuff in my pockets
  • that I have to wear a belt,
  • just because of the stuff in my pockets. (laughs)
  • - For women's' pants, a lot of them are
  • more tight to the body.
  • You don't want to add probably more volume
  • like right around the frontal thigh.
  • If you put your phone in your back pocket
  • it changes the shape of the booty.
  • - The shape of the booty's important.
  • (laughter)
  • - Yeah for the viewers at home,
  • Ned's talking about his booty. - Oh yeah, yeah.
  • - Not your booty.
  • - It's okay we can talk about the collective booty
  • of humanity.
  • - Out of all the try guys, I carry the least in my pockets
  • I especially don't use my pockets when I go out at night
  • because I really don't want to ruin the form of my outfit.
  • I'm not a big fan of the bulkiness around the waist
  • and the legs and the ass.
  • I want that bulkiness to speak for itself,
  • you know what I'm saying?
  • Yeah.
  • - How do I know my size? Like what's a 14?
  • I'm a 30 waist? Why don't they just go by normal numbers.
  • In my life I've worn tight jeans,
  • but at least I've always had the choice.
  • - (sighs)
  • The thing is I don't even like shopping for my clothes.
  • - Think of it like you're shopping for Ariel. For love.
  • - Okay. For love. I don't like shopping for Ariel.
  • - Oh no I stressed him out more. I stressed him out more.
  • - So are you guys going to be buying
  • women's pants and wearing them?
  • Or what's the plan here?
  • - What do you think?
  • - I think you guys should go for it.
  • I think there are definitely some jeggings
  • that have enough stretch in them,
  • that none of you guys should have a problem.
  • I think even Keith, don't look at me like that,
  • I think you could find a pair. - I don't know
  • I have trouble finding pants for me
  • in the men's section sometimes.
  • - Is it like the length?
  • - They expect that human men only grow like this.
  • Not like this.
  • - [Girl] That makes sense.
  • - [Zach] What is happening?
  • - [Keith] These are high fashion pants bro.
  • - These are on sale.
  • I think this is going to suck.
  • - I think actually you want to
  • show mid drift in these pants.
  • Strangely enough that's better.
  • I'm just saying that's the look the pants demand.
  • I think this is going to be miserable.
  • He's like Kim Possible.
  • - I'm not Ron, I'm the naked mole rat.
  • I'm going to be left with two options.
  • Either I'm just going to be carrying around all my bullshit
  • like an idiot.
  • Or I'm not going to have everything that I need
  • to get through my day. Like an idiot.
  • - The style of these shorts is mom.
  • Here's the reason I'm excited for this video,
  • is cause of this.
  • I don't think this looks good.
  • It's a big wallet mark on what otherwise
  • would be very nice pants.
  • Oh yeah so smooth. Does it make my butt looked good?
  • - [Keith] Your thighs are about half the width
  • of required thigh width.
  • (laughter)
  • - Eugene, this is not a real option.
  • (laughing)
  • This looks great.
  • - [All] Woahhhhhhh.
  • - I've always appreciated trying to find pants that fit well
  • and generally things in the pocket ruin the form.
  • - [Ned] Wow - [Zach] Heyyyy
  • - What is in my pockets right now?
  • I have,
  • oh no sir, I'm poor.
  • Spare a shilling?
  • And now we proudly present, Keith
  • in our special jolly slim denim look.
  • These are pocketless in the front
  • and provide two spacious pockets in the back.
  • - I feel like my legs are getting a hug
  • and I'm not ready to carry anything with me.
  • No baggage please.
  • - You guys? I think these are too tight on me.
  • (laughter)
  • I don't think they're the right size.
  • - [Keith] But they look great with your socks.
  • - [Eugene] What can you tell us
  • about the history of pockets?
  • - My knowledge of the modern women's pocket
  • kind of starts in the 1700's.
  • - [Zach] That's when they had the big poofy dresses.
  • - Yeah basically.
  • There's a lot of different layers of garment.
  • So it was really easy to put a lil pocket
  • underneath an overdress to have for yourself.
  • Then when fashion changed into the 1800's
  • where more slimmer silhouettes came in,
  • there wasn't room for a pocket that you could easily hide
  • so pockets kind of disappeared off women's clothing.
  • And after that, women were either having
  • to carry stuff around in handbags
  • or the suffragettes as a subversive symbol
  • kind of like sewed pockets into their dresses
  • to be like we can have pockets too.
  • - So pockets are basically I'm liberated
  • I don't need no man.
  • - Exactly, pockets and lipstick.
  • That was the old sex, drugs and rock and roll.
  • The thing that kind of turns that on its head though
  • is the participation in the work force in World War II.
  • Because there weren't really pants that were made for women
  • they had to wear mens pants.
  • So designers actually started catering to them
  • and started making slimmer fit pants
  • designed for women.
  • So with that, the pockets were reduced
  • to what I can only assume is their current size.
  • So I feel like pockets in womens garments like at one point
  • was kind of like a yeah well we're liberated
  • and we've got pockets now.
  • And now its more like, now its totally common
  • for woman to wear pants that are fitted to their bodies.
  • So, its more of a fashion thing.
  • - What a loaded history.
  • - I just learned it.
  • (laughter)
  • (techno beat)
  • ♪I am the new model ♪
  • - Eugene, Eugene, Eugene,
  • you had to go ahead and be extra
  • and get the sexy matador pants.
  • If anything, it does call a lot more attention to the front.
  • I didn't mean to say that as if it was big.
  • But you know what I mean.
  • There's really no mens pants that are designed
  • with this zipper latch combo in the back.
  • This is a prime example of something so small
  • yet so frustrating.
  • - Hey ariel. What do you think of my look?
  • - Oooh. Oh look, we match.
  • Look at that face!
  • - Oh no.
  • I'm a baby.
  • Yes I love you too, yeah hi.
  • (kisses)
  • - [Zach] First of all, I look dope.
  • - [Keith] You look great.
  • - But this, the one thing I need my pants to do
  • is to hold my cellphone. That's it.
  • This is stupid.
  • I imagine when you go out, you're faced with the choice
  • am I bringing a bag or am I just carrying
  • all my shit in my hands?
  • - I used to carry my shit in my hands,
  • like back in college. But I don't do that anymore.
  • - You're an adult now.
  • - We're going to our workout class. I got all my stuff
  • in my hands.
  • Becky was mean to me in the beginning of the week.
  • She was just giving me more stuff to hold.
  • Can you get the door?
  • (laughter)
  • Come on.
  • So every time we do these lady experiments now,
  • she's like oh I'm going to make it even worse for you.
  • I got the door open, thanks Becky.
  • Marriage is a partnership.
  • Now I got Becky's stuff and my stuff.
  • How am I supposed to have any water?
  • - I'm taking Bowie for his morning walk.
  • Say hello boseph.
  • Look at all this nonsense.
  • - I'm currently holding two leashes, my house keys.
  • - [Zach] Oh boy he just took a poop.
  • - I feel this is way too much poop for one hand.
  • - I'm so over this immediately.
  • - So this is what I've got to carry today.
  • My wallet, keys, my lunch and my baby.
  • - Here's a question. When you're leaving the house
  • how do you know you have everything?
  • Cause you can't do the wallet wallet check, you know.
  • - You just look at it.
  • - Oh my god.
  • - I feel like I look cute.
  • But I really don't have anywhere to put my stuff.
  • Wes would you mind if you hung out next to a wallet?
  • Why don't you be in charge of holding my keys.
  • Oh awesome. Yes. Okay.
  • - Perfect. Oh I got to lock my.
  • Oh fuck. No.
  • Locked.
  • - I have now given myself an upgrade.
  • A stroller is basically pockets on wheels.
  • I wonder if I could use a stroller without a baby.
  • Hey how are ya?
  • - I think you're not going to know where to put your things.
  • You might leave things behind.
  • - Eugene has lost his phone 13,000 times.
  • So I just walked into this CVS to return some makeup
  • for Becky.
  • And I realized my wallet is in
  • the side pocket of my backpack.
  • So I have to go back to my car.
  • - I am locked out of my place.
  • Every time I leave the house, I pat down each pocket
  • to make sure that my keys are there.
  • But this time I don't have pockets to pat down.
  • So I just walked out without my keys and I'm now locked out.
  • What fun.
  • - Talk to us about some of the alternatives.
  • - Alternatives to pockets,
  • pouches, handbags, canteens.
  • - You seen the recent one that slings across
  • that the kids are wearing?
  • - Yeah and its kind of like a fanny pack.
  • - I think they look super fucking stupid.
  • (laughter)
  • I think you're wearing a princess sash with a wallet on it.
  • And you look like a moron.
  • And you look like a moron.
  • And you look like a moron.
  • I can't take it anymore. I'm going to Macy's.
  • I'm buying those stupid over my chest bags.
  • I'm losing it.
  • - I am excited because I kind of feel like
  • I need to get something that I've always been curious
  • about shopping for.
  • I think it's time we need to buy a purse.
  • So I'm here at the mall, about to go shopping for my purse.
  • Already I find that I have to put my wallet
  • in my waist band.
  • You know I may not have bought a purse for myself before,
  • but I knew exactly where I wanted to go first.
  • Bam.
  • So I asked whoever was working in some of
  • the stores that my sisters and mom love,
  • how much all the purses were.
  • And in general they seem to retail around
  • a few thousand dollars, so.
  • I really didn't understand how expensive
  • the nice designer purses were.
  • That's why knock off purses are so popular.
  • I get it now.
  • - Have you ever done the.
  • - Oh putting stuff in your bra?
  • You could put stuff in your bra if you guys
  • want to also wear bra's.
  • - The body's natural pocket.
  • - Exactly. One might even call it a shelf.
  • - I don't have a bra, but I do have under bra.
  • I wear underwear.
  • Hello. Okay.
  • Oh it's like cold and stabby.
  • Maybe I should've gotten the purse.
  • - I have been shopping for a purse for hours now.
  • And they're either too expensive or they're too ugly
  • and they're never in between.
  • And I feel like I'm going crazy
  • because I keep starting at the same fucking handbags
  • and I just want a cute purse that's not too expensive,
  • is that so much to ask?
  • - It's a whole section of the store just for bags.
  • I mean I've seen it before,
  • but I've never really seen it before, you know?
  • I just walked through the entire purse section,
  • and I found a bag I thought might work,
  • and it was 60 dollars.
  • And I just can't.
  • I'm so stressed out by this.
  • I just want a cheap bag to put around my belly.
  • - Okay I got to wrap this up soon.
  • Because I've been out shopping for forever.
  • And these pants, my dick is getting so bunched up in them.
  • - It's the end of our little pocket time.
  • We're headed to lunch.
  • Lunch is like somebody at one point was like,
  • man everybody's so sad in the middle of the day.
  • Oh let's feed em.
  • - Alright well I tried a bunch of different things.
  • What ended up working was
  • just putting everything in one bag.
  • As a new dad, I got a lot of stuff I needed to carry.
  • Honestly having a bag to put it all in, was kind of nice.
  • - What is that bag? Is that a laptop bag?
  • - No this is a baby bag.
  • - [Zach] Wow, the thing you swore you'd never wear.
  • - I thought this was a hipster thing or like a bro thing.
  • Guess where I bought this? Hot Topic.
  • - Wow, Hot Topic. The brand that grows with you.
  • - Yeah. Here's a cool thing.
  • You could fit a whole burger in this.
  • I smuggled a burger into a movie.
  • Let's see if I can't put Alex's burger in my bag.
  • - That would really be great for me honestly.
  • (laughter)
  • it's perfectly burger sized.
  • - Cool!
  • They totally bought it.
  • - Yeah we are covertly in with snacks.
  • - We're in!
  • - [Ned] Yesss, oh my god.
  • - [Keith] You look like a rich woman.
  • - I know I feel like me going extra,
  • like I typically do in style videos
  • was kind of to my detriment
  • because it all just became about how hard it was
  • to rock these pants.
  • These are very difficult pants to pull off.
  • Now I understand why I'm always with my sisters and mom
  • for hours when they shop for purses.
  • - [Keith] What's the MK stand for?
  • - It's famous designer Margo Kornfeld
  • - My mom, yay (claps).
  • - It's a purse, Mk?
  • - [Eugene] I like that too.
  • - How much it cost?
  • - Bout 100 dollars.
  • (groaning)
  • - [Keith] Heyyyy wow.
  • - [Ned] You spent all week and this is what you came up with
  • putting it in your waist band?
  • - There's one more thing are you ready?
  • - Three, two, pachow.
  • What do you call this?
  • Cellphone wallet.
  • Everything I own is in my hand right now.
  • - I feel like that would make me more nervous.
  • - Yeah it does.
  • I don't know that my experience is indicative
  • of the female experience
  • but certainly there is a huge level of adjustment
  • you have to put into your life.
  • So much so that I'm sure most people watching
  • arent' even aware of it.
  • - Maybe you'll learn that you like tight pants more.
  • You like the shape of your booty a little bit more.
  • - You know what? My butt looks good.
  • - [Keith] Yeah my butt just touches all the chair
  • because these pants are so thin.
  • - Eugene's already gone that route.
  • So the door's already a little open.
  • It's cracked, a little bit.
  • - Eugene's butt is cracked.
  • - That's what I was going for.
  • - [Ned] Excellent connection, Zach.
  • (laughter)
  • (upbeat music)
  • Hoodies, t-shirts, mugs and more.
